Description: As our country continues to embroil itself in foreign wars and once again pins its hopes on a new leader's promise for change, the feature length documentary, "Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune" is a timely tribute to an unlikely American hero. Phil Ochs, a folk singing legend, who many called the emotional heart of his generation, loved his country and he pursued its honor, in song and action, with a ferocity that had no regard for consequences. Wielding only a battered guitar, a clear voice and a quiver of razor sharp songs, he tirelessly fought the good fight for peace and justice throughout his short life.
